In the Caring Place Community Kitchen, Joanna shared some very homey Chinese dishes.
The first recipe is a simple Pork Neck Bone with Corn Soup. You may use pork rib to make this soup for a meatier cut of meat. Pork neck bone is very cheap, 99 cents per pound.
- 2 pounds pork neck bone
- 4 corns, cut into chunks
- 3 to 4 slices of ginger
- 8 to 10 cups of water
- salt to taste

|Bring a pot a water to a boil and blanch the pork neck bone. This is to get rid of the blood from the bones. Rinse the bones under running cold water to clean them.
|Return the pork to a new pot of boiling water. Add a few slices of ginger to get rid of the porky flavour and also to get rid of wind as the Chinese believes. Boil for one hour on medium heat, covered.
|Add the corn and boil for another 15 to 30 minutes. Season with salt before serving.
